    For anyone who like cannabis I think a vaping stick with canibol oil is better than smoke.

    My own drug of choice is alcohol -- moonshine and/or wine to be more specific.

    EverClear and/or Sangria and/or Pinot Grigio to be most specific.

    See, stoners think this sort of reply makes them look smart, even though it isn't what anybody said, it's just the voices in their heads ...

    If you knew anything about Prohibition you wouldn't make such stupid claims. You probably think the Prohibition Amendment made alcohol illegal, like most semi-literates who can't be bothered to look into anything and prefer to just repeat whatever nonsense sounded good to them when they read it.

    The Amendment and restrictions on alcohol remained popular enough that it was only repealed for money reasons, a government desperate for any kind tax revenue; it also remained in force in many states for decades afterwards. It in fact lowered consumption significantly compared to pre-Amendment years when booze consumption in the U.S. was 3 times the per capita consumption in Europe for most of the 19th century. It didn't get back to those levels until the 1960's, and drunk drivers were making the roads and highways slaughterhouses.

    Pretty funny, coming from a left wing puppet who is all about Big Brother, PC Nazism, and Nazi style street thuggery.

    Why would it? Ever been in a ghetto? You think all the violence and crime is just over drugs?

    They kill over tennis shoes.


    You think they can't take over legitimate businesses? Want to bet many of the pot boutiques aren't run by biker gangs and other organized crime syndicates?

    They're disproportionately violent criminals; whether that fits the PC fantasies or not is unimportant. Black politicians wanted to War On Drugs, and they wanted black neighborhoods to get special attention. Take it up with Charles Rangel and the Congressional Black Caucus; they lobbied for it and Nixon obliged them.

    How many of those are there, and why do you think there aren't other circumstances behind the sentences?

    Ah, the usual anecdotal stories, which of course never seem to actually match the exaggerated 'outrage' intended.

    If you have to fake outrage at a pothead getting longer sentences than a rapist you are a POS

    OT:
    My kin make peach, orange and pear fruit infused 'shine. It's amazing! The peach is the easiest to make. Core and peel the fruit, drop it in the jar with the hootch, and let it sit in the root cellar for a few years. The orange flavored one takes more effort -- the inner membranes, along with the peel, have to be removed and the liquor strained after it's set up. Otherwise the process is the same. (One whole fruit per quart jar.)

    And of course you can't answer why you think that Big Brother should be telling all of us- you- me- everyone- about what you can- or cannot injest.

    Apples and oranges.

    We are talking about the violence caused by the black market of pot- just as there was violence associated with the black market for alcohol during prohibition.

    The end of prohibition essentially ended the spree of violence of gangs fighting for the lucrative illegal alcohol trade. It didn't end all violence- but it did end the violence that was caused by alcohol being illegal.

    Making pot legal will likewise in the end- eliminate virtually all the violence caused by pot being illegal. It won't stop all violence- but why wouldn't you prefer that violence to continue- and for that money to continue to flow to criminals?
